Answered by The Fertility Center of the Carolinas

Do you mean with IVF? I assume you have not had your tubal ligation reversed? With IVF you should have a very good chance assuming some initial hormone testing is normal.

I am assuming that you are asking about your chance of conceiving after tubal reversal. If you have adequate tubal segments to repair, normal menstrual cycles, are of normal weight and your partner has a normal semen analysis, your chance of conceiving after tubal reversal is approximately 15-20 percent per month and up to 80-85 percent within a year. If you had a procedure where coils were put into your tubes, then repair is very difficult and in vitro fertilization would be recommended.

With IVF, you have a 50-70 percent chance of becoming pregnant with a single embryo transfer to the uterus. With reconnecting the tubes (tubal reversal), the pregnancy rate for one year after the surgery is 40-60 percent.

IVF is an option for you after having a tubal ligation. Given your age, which is still relatively young, there is a good possibility that you will be able to do IVF using your own eggs, which would be discussed after a consultation and diagnostic testing.

I would guestimate the answer is virtually zero. If you had a tubal ligation 5 years ago, the chance of recanalization (reconnecting of the severed tubal ends on their own) of the tube after the tubes have been tied is very unlikely. On the other hand, if you are really asking what your chances are at becoming pregnant after your tubal ligation is reversed, the answer would be, quite good assuming no other new fertility issues popped up since you had the ligation.

With tubal ligation reversal, your chances of success would be around 70 percent. If you don't have the reversal you would need in vitro fertilization or have to count on tubal ligation failure.

I had the Hulka clips put on during a tubal ligation procedure when I was 24 years old. I am now 30 and my husband and I want another child. We are uncertain if my irregular periods are being caused by some of the Hulka clips coming off, or maybe the tube has grown around them. Is this likely and would either cause irregular periods? Also, would tubal reversal be a good option if we are considering having another child?
